Drawing on anthropological and historical data, this book examines human-wildlife relations in China, Tibet, Japan, Bhutan, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, India, Thailand and Vietnam. The volume initially focuses on the various ways in which wild animals are exploited as a resource, for food, medicine and crop-picking labour, before examining animals termed as pests or predators that are deemed to be harmful and dangerous.

Bringing together anthropologists and historians, this book analyses the range, variability and historical mutability of human sensibilities towards animals in Asia and will be of interest to Asianists and anthropologists alike.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The reader who instantly tenses at the words 'conference volume' can be reassured; all the papers are data-rich, detailed, well thought out, and balanced. In fact, rarely has a book about the anthropology of environmental management packed more data into so little space.' - The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

'This book affords an accessible and broad perspective on wildlife in Asia, going well beyond just a single species of interest...At a time when much of the world is taking a fresh look toward Asia, this book offers varied perspectives on wildlife in Asian countries.' - Anthrozoos
